Orange-Poppy Seed Pancakes

I woke up so incredibly happy today! Maybe due to the fact that I'd been sick for almost a whole week and could not do anything besides lying in bed. It was awful, let me tell ya!
But today, Today is a new day and I am bursting with energy! So it was a no brainer to make some pancakes for breakfast! The sun is shining, I am no longer (at least not as much) sick anymore, it's Friday so what more could I ask for? :)
I was thinking about what kinda pancakes I should make... The banana, oatmeal and buttermilk ones sounded kind of boring. But then I thought, let's throw in some poppy seeds! And make the pancakes even more spectacular than they already are with a few squeezes of fresh orange juice! Ahhh, totally amazing. Totally, utterly, completely amazing :) I ate them with some maple syrup, slices of orange and some plain greek yogurt. If I haven't already convinced you to make some, like right now, then I'll tell you, they're made with whole wheat flour and just a tiny bit of raw cane sugar. Oh and they're dairy-free! Soooo they're not only fabulous in the taste, but they're even good for you! Yay for pancakes!

Orange-Poppy Seed Pancakes
makes for 2 or 3

1 cup rice milk - or any type of milk of your choice
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup + 4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 egg
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp raw cane sugar
2 Tbsp poppy seeds
1/2 orange - the juice and zest of it
1 Tbsp oil

In a bowl, sift together the flours, baking soda, sugar, poppy seeds and the orange zest.
In another bowl mix together the milk and the egg. Add in the orange juice and the oil. Fold in the dry ingredients, mix well. 
Heat a griddle or a pan. Pour the batter over the pan, about 2-3 tablespoons a time. Cook on one side until you can see small holes forming on top. Flip with a spatula and cook for another minute or 2. Do the same with the rest of the batter.
Serve with maple syrup or greek yogurt or some fresh orange. Enjoy! :)

Homemade Nutella

I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give? I was thinking really hard when a completely random thing came to my mind. I should make some nutella. She loves nutella. Frankly, who doesn't, right? I love it, too although it's been years since I ate any. I can't really explain why because I always think that if I eat just one spoon, I will gain a 100 pounds immediately. But with this thought, I shouldn't be eating any brownies, cookies...etc.  BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. OH MY GOD. I wouldn't have though

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!
